Alec L. Critten Labradford's final album finds them in a rather unique musical divide, straddling the lines between post-rock or even rock at all and pure ambient textures. By greatly limiting their sonic palette, these musicians are able to conjure a striking sound. Instead of lush sonic worldbuilding, fixed::context is defined by sleek, industrial tones that succeed in leaving an impression on the listener. This record may pass you by upon first listen, but it will draw you in, again and again. Favorite track: Twenty. Jack Kadien. Jack Kadien One of the greates.

My first pass through fixed::context left me completely bored. As with E Luxo So, there just didn't seem enough to the music to hold my interest. But each time I played it, fixed::context burrowed just a little deeper in my brain and I now hum the simple themes constantly, even when the record is nowhere in sight. I may have been a bit slow on the uptake initially because fixed::context is an absurdly minimal proposition. After dabbling with orchestral flourishes on their last two records, Labradford return to their instrumental roots here. To be honest, the clichéd sound of the soundtracky guitar is one of the things that turned me off from Labradford's last two records. This is a short-run reissue from Kranky. According to the label one of the vinyl pressing plants we use found a few hundred unused jackets for the krank047 Labradford - fixed:context LP, so we had them press vinyl and filled them and these are now available once again for however long stock lasts - 012518.

With Fixed::Context, they've built on the spatial qualities of E Luxo So, while making their most personal and intimate recording, despite it being completely vocal-less. Simple, subtle, and quite beautiful, the 37-minute album rewards during deep concentration and as use for background. It's just as scenic as Scenic and just as pleasantly dust-blown as Ry Cooder's score to Paris, Texas. Barely-there electronic rustling and an organ drone lead off the 18-minute-long Twenty.

The band has been described as guitar,keyboards, bass & subdued vocals mix up a brew of lo-ball ambiance and occasional icy sadness.
